Gonorrhea is caused by the bacterium Neisseria gonorrhoeae. The gonorrhoea bacteria are most often passed from one person to another during sexual contact, including oral, anal or vaginal intercourse. It’s sexually transmitted, and most people with gonorrhoea don’t have symptoms. Gonorrhea is sometimes called “the clap” or “the drip.” You can also get gonorrhoea by touching your eye if you have infected fluids on your hand. Gonorrhea can also be spread to a baby during birth if the mother has it. Main groups who are primarily affected: men who have sex with men (the group with the greatest increase), People in remote settings, and people who have heterosexual contact overseas. Other heterosexual cases are uncommon. Gonorrhea is usually easily cured with antibiotics. But if you don’t treat gonorrhoea early enough, it can lead to more serious health problems in the future.
